Does anyone have any tip for going against MvPs? Maybe an ideal party?

Also, I saw this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgAPwoTIXp0

and I don't understand why the summoned monsters go attack the one behind. If anyone could explain to me the strategy used here (besides the already explained Strong Shield usage to prevent knockback), it would be appreciated.

Oh wait I can turn off the sound right?

As I understand it they simply go after the sader because the sader was closest to them when they spawned, and Doddler(LK/tank) didn't bother them so they didn't switch. Then the party simply avoids damaging them, if any accidentally dies and respawns the sader can provoke it off the tank. And so it goes.

As for tactics, it depends on MvP. Mostly though, since MvPs were so ridiculously buffed, people use glitches and tricks to kill them - Ice Wall is very popular(Especially against Randgris), I don't know if ankle snare still works; glitch where Spiral Pierce locked MvPs in place will be fixed on iRO in a few weeks(probably). My favourite will be Shield Reflect - guys at tRO use it to kill Great Demon Baphomet without actually weakening him, at the point where he is supposed to be unkillable.



Eske it, Paladin with Battlegrounds set and Strong Shield. Spam Shield Reflect, Ressurect, Ice Wall, and Fiberlock.

It depends on the MvPs.  Most MvPing parties on low rates have a Sage/Scholar, Bard/Clown + Dancer/Gypsy, Priest(s), Any high damager, MvP tanker and Slave tanker.  Obviously you can do most MvPs without this much characters, but for higher-end MvPs thats sort of the ideal.  However, MvPs like satan morroc, beelzebub and ifrit require about 2 parties full, even guilds depending on your equipment and strategies.

The reason the slaves automatically go to the crusader is because they were the first character they targeted, and since no one else attacked them, whenever they are recalled the automatically return to fight the crusader.

Although I haven't MvPed since about 2006 in a party (sniper soloing everything these days ruined the game for me),  the guild I am in on valkyrie asked me to help them at Ktull.  We had a party of 11 People, 3 Wizards, A priest, Champion, 2 Soul Linkers, A paladin, 2 Bards + Dancer.  We pretty much took down Ktull within 6 minutes (all of our party were <90 excluding myself where I am 94, so it was quite a nice achievement) and all we did was Bragi + Gypsy Kiss JT + Esma Spam, and the champion Asura'd any nearby titans since the place was rather mobby.

You learn MvP strategies after you go against them the first time or serveral times after.  You'll realise how to weaken them or prevent them from dealing any damage at all along with fast and effective ways of dealing damage.

Even on low rates, as long as you have certain MVP cards, you can actually do MVPs like Ifrit with a few people.

Lol, provided you have the patience to hunt GTB for months, even years.

XileRo is the only HR I know that has a reasonable PvP system. I did watch the RWC like you said, all I see is people spamming the room like every other gang fight there is in RO.

Some MvPs can be done solo, like most lower level MvPs.
Some other MvPs need some people. you should aspecify, what MvP you want to kill.
Generally for standard MvPs Champ and Sniper are good classes.

GTB over Penomena card?  You'd die FASTER.

Sorry for not specifying. When talking about MvPs, I was referring to stronger MvPs such as Ifrit, Valkyrie Ragnis, etc. (MvPs with over 1mil HP?). I can solo most, if not all, of the weaker MvPs. I would like to know strategies for those MvPs that require a party.

Lol, say what you want, but I've witnessed my guild mates in a party with around 5 people do Ifrit. Yes, lowrate.
